5 out of 5 eggsRuns as advertised

Pros: Runs at specified speed. Everyone who is crying about it not running at 1066mhz obviously doesn't know their bios that well. This memory is fast and the cooling on them is great. I highly recommend it if you are not looking to overclock your memory.

Cons: Does not overclock well, but then again it never claimed to.

Other Thoughts: I would have really enjoyed this memory a lot more if it was more overclockable.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat if ran at stock speeds

Pros: Runs perfect @1066MHz!

Cons: Does not overclock well at all...

Other Thoughts: Those of you in the previous reviews who are "unable" to run at stock speeds, check in your BIOS for a setting related to "Enable SLI Mode". Enabling this setting will automatically set correct voltage/timings, and will enable 1066MHz speed. If you do not have this setting, you SHOULD still be able to manually set the voltage to 2.05-2.1 and adjust the frequency. If you can not, make certain that your hardware supports PC2 8500 memory!

2 out of 5 eggsWon't run at speed specified

Pros: Nice looking and heavy

Cons: Will NOT run @ 1066 can't boot into OS
Ran at 2.0 volts 2.1 and tried 2.2v will not boot.

Other Thoughts: Will run 4,4,4,12,2T at DDR2-800. But I paid for and expected to get DDR2-1066 at 5,5,5,15 timings.

1 out of 5 eggsWhy advertise..doesn't work

Pros: I give it 1 egg because I can't give it ZERO eggs. No pros what so ever...when I set bios to auto on all memory settings it works.....but at DDR2-800.

Cons: Will NOT run at advertised timings...this memory sucks THE BIG 1.

Other Thoughts: If I wanted DDR2-800 memory..I would've bought GSkill. best DDR2-800 memory on the planet. This soft brown stuff that comes from my behind sucks WILL NOT run 1066 at any settings or voltage. At least my computer will not boot into OS unless I have settings all memory on auto...so I can get ddr2-800 @ 5,5,5,18. I call it Mushkant. With all the advancements in computer technology, you'd think when you spend almost $100.00 for DDR2-1066...you'd get DDR2-1066. I got DDR2-800 at reduced timings. Well....I'd say you get what you pay for but I got GSkill Black PI DDR2-800-4,4,4,12 @ 1.9v
Beats the soft brown stuff that comes from my behind out of this stuff.

I'm REALLY Pd'off

5 out of 5 eggsExcellant memory

Pros: This is very high quality memory. I stressed tested with Prime for hours with no errors.

Cons: The heat sinks are a little wide. Its best to check to see if your motherboards supports the width.

5 out of 5 eggsStill kickin'!

Pros: These babies stay cool! ASCENT technology rocks, so if you don't need this technology make sure you buy the other model. Too many people complain about the size when they buy the model with the LARGER heatsink. We went to the moon and people complain about their own mistakes? Gosh. Anyways, 1066 solid! 5-5-5-15 Solid!

Cons: The people that this RAM brings the stupidity out of.

Other Thoughts: ONE minor issue for me. I had a DFI 790fx board with these for about 5 months. I recently upgraded to a Gigabyte MA790FX-UD5P. Now, for some reason the DFI dual channel config had the RAM seperate, but the Gigabyte board has them side by side. I had to really push these things in there and they are kind of crooked now, but its been running solid for 2 or so months with no issues. Can overclock these babies to 1150 with just 2v!
REMEMBER to think about future upgrades. The RAM may fit now, but not in an upgrade. So keep that in mind! I wish they weren't so close together but you can't always control these things. I'm just glad I didn't break the board or the RAM getting em in because I honestly do not want to use any other RAM. EVER. I was a Patriot fan until I bought Mushkin. This was my first set of RAM and I've never been more satisfied with a component from any company like I have with this RAM. W0o00o0ot!

5 out of 5 eggsruns great

Pros: noticibly faster load times (went from mushkin blue 1066 to black) had 4 1 gig sticks of blue went to 4 sticks of black. Ordered it overnight and got it the next day.

Cons: It doesnt tell me the winning lottery numbers. or do the dishes

Other Thoughts: the heatsinks are more wide than there older versions of the ramsinks made it a really tight fit.

5 out of 5 eggskikin some A S S

Pros: popped in and boom, working great. my 1st Mushkin product, and very:) pleased. found out bout this RAM on a MaximusIIFormula forum. and again :) !!

Cons: ehh, none really. some tweaking to OC. But that was expected...have to be a bit careful with the cpu step up on the MIIF motherboard. set the voltage correct and let the board take care of the rest (for an easy OC, of course not for the "serious OCer", hehe, they must do it all themselves:).

Other Thoughts: lets see..runnin
ASUS-Maximus II Formula
Intel Core2 Q9550S Yorkfield 2.83GHz 12MB OCed to 3.92GHz
ChillTec CPU Cooler-Ultra Tec/Peltier+Heatpipe cooler
MSI-N285GTX SuperPipe series GPU
Muskin-XP Ascent 2x2G RAM
XION Power Real 1000W ATX Power Supply
Cooler Master RC-1100 Cosmos S ATX Full-Tower Case<-love this case!!!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome memory

Pros: This memory looks awesome and preforms awesome. I haven't prime95 tested it yet, but im sure it will pass with flying colors.
high quality manufacturing, what you pay for is what you get.

Cons: size. I didnt have any real problems putting them in my DIMM slots on my ASUS P5q-e, but if the slots on your MOBO are right next to eachother, you may want to look at a different pair, because the heatsinks make this memory slightly larger than the actual DIMM slot.

Other Thoughts: even on my board its a tight fit; the heatsinks touch :D.
haven't OC'ed yet, but im planning on doing so.
